Colorado Gives Day Raises a Record-breaking $39.6 Million in 24 Hours
- December 12, 2019
On Tuesday, December 10th, Community First Foundation celebrated the 10th anniversary of its annual giving event. In just 24 hours, Colorado Gives Day 2019 raised a record-breaking $39.6 million for 2,569 local nonprofits.
Founded in 2010 with the financial support of Colorado-based FirstBank, ColoradoGives began with the goal of connecting donors with nonprofits. Now, it’s a statewide movement celebrating community and philanthropy.
This year, Community First Foundation, FirstBank, and other community members came together to offer a $1.5 million incentive fund, making this year’s event even more exciting. The incentive fund gives nonprofits additional opportunity to raise more by offering a proportionate share of the funds at the conclusion of the event.
Colorado Gives Day continues to generate new ideas to host bigger and better giving events. The CiviCore Giving Platform has been able to provide a customized platform to bring those ideas to life and sustain Colorado Gives Day’s growth year after year.
“CiviCore has made a huge difference for us,” says Dan Rinderknecht, Director of Online Giving at Community First Foundation. “We do something new every single year. It’s a partnership.”

One of their system’s more innovative features is their Amazon-like checkout functionality which allows donors to give to multiple nonprofits in a single transaction. The CiviCore team also worked with them to create Kids for ColoradoGives, which encourages children to get involved with giving e-cards.
